At only twenty-one, Dieter started his own thriving business and lived the good life in Hamburg, Germany. By the age of twenty-four, he knew something was missing: there must be more to life than earning a living and he wanted to find it in Australia as a quest for all things vital: health, love, creativity, meaning, purpose and independence.

Arriving in Sydney in 1974, Dieter and his girlfriend Giselle lived, worked and explored Australia in their yellow panel van for two and a half years, discovering themselves and their unpredictable future.

Paperback cover - Ludwig Leichhardt - 26.5_edited.jpg
'Ludwig Leichhardt'
by
Darcy Lloyd

The Man. The Legend.

Copyedited and Published by LLOYD MOSS publishing

To understand Leichhardt, the man, we must begin with Ludwig, the boy.  His father was highly influential and encouraged Ludwig to read, to be diligent, to love nature and to value knowledge above all things. 

Leaving everything he loved behind, the young Leichhardt embarks alone for the colony of New South Wales. In this book, we follow his progress, setbacks, disputes and triumphs in his successful first expedition and his failed second expedition. 

What happened to the man they called "the Doctor"? He and his men and animals disappeared into the unknown continent, leaving barely a trace. Their fate became one of the great unsolved mysteries of European settlement of Terra Australis.  

This enthralling new book on Leichhardt reveals him to be a visionary, a man so single-minded and determined that he would allow nothing to stand in his way of realising his great plan.
